Iran's Tempting Target

Charles Krauthammer has written a poignant piece that eloquently elucidates what is at stake in the Middle East. The temporizing over whether Iran will be confronted emphatically raises questions as to whether the west has forgotten promises made in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Krauthammer's column concludes:

Last week Bernard Lewis, America's dean of Islamic studies, who just turned 90 and remembers the 20th century well, confessed that for the first time he feels it is 1938 again. He did not need to add that in 1938, in the face of the gathering storm -- a fanatical, aggressive, openly declared enemy of the West, and most determinedly of the Jews -- the world did nothing.

When Iran's mullahs acquire their coveted nukes in the next few years, the number of Jews in Israel will just be reaching 6 million. Never again?
